Angered by plans to cut their car allowance, two Ventura County supervisors said Wednesday that they will reject a committee's pay recommendations that include giving them a 4.5% raise. Supervisors now receive 65% of a Superior Court judge's yearly salary. Members of a blue-ribbon salary committee have recommended raising that to 70%. The increase would raise supervisors' salaries from $71,897 a year to $75,173. In the future, supervisors would receive a pay increase whenever judges got one.

Ventura County supervisors on Tuesday will again take up the contentious issue of cutting their pay, debating a proposed ordinance that would eliminate any extra money they receive to serve on various boards and commissions. But at least one supervisor is vowing that pay cuts won't happen without a fight. Supervisor John K. Flynn, who represents Oxnard, said he deserves the roughly $2,100 he earns each year as chairman of a county tax appeals board and shouldn't be forced to give it up.

A retirement perk for elected department heads that will cost Ventura County government nearly $1 million over the next 10 years is being challenged by Supervisor Steve Bennett. Elected on a reform platform last fall, Bennett said he plans to bring a letter before the board next month asking members to reconsider the benefit, which he likened to a retirement giveaway that past review committees have openly condemned.

The Ventura County grand jury Thursday recommended that county supervisors suspend monthly car allowances for themselves and 34 other top county employees to save taxpayer dollars and end a practice of double reimbursement. In a four-page report, the grand jury said the county could save $445,200 by curtailing monthly allowances during a two-year trial period. The report also urged supervisors and top managers to try to use cars from the county motor pool while on county business.

Ventura County judges are considering giving a $23,000-a-year raise to court executive officer Sheila Gonzalez, despite the county's looming budget deficit and the threat of widespread layoffs.
